About book Between Lovers (2003)

I'll start this review by saying this, I am a very big fan of Eric Jerome Dickey.There's just something about his work that makes you not want to put the book down until the end.This is also the case with his latest book, Friends and Lovers. Although at first I was somewhat drawn to the story line, it wasn't until I had gotten through the first chapter that I had found myself hooked. The story line is this: The main character got dumped at the altar by Nicole. Nicole then moved away from their hometown to be with her loved Ayanna.The author comes to visit with leads Nicole to feeling torn between her old love and her new love.Also, Nicole then tries to merge her old life with her new life which leads to hurt feelings as well as new experiences with intimacy.Throughout the course of the novel, the reader is put on a kind of emotional roller coaster. While at times you feel sorry for the narrator, at times, you feel angry with him because he is not seeing things as they truly are. What I liked most about this novel was the way in which the characters interacted with each other.When I was reading this book, I felt as if these were people I actually knew and I was friends with them. In my opinion, it takes a special person to be able to communicate relationships like that to a reader. Overall, I enjoyed this book very much and I have already recommended it to someone.I feel that anyone who reads it will like it as much as I did if not more.

This book is about a man named Darell who is a big time writer living in Calaiforina and he is madly in love with a woman named Nicole and on there wedding day he thinks he is going to get married to the woman who he thinks is the love of his life well when it's time to say their I do's Nicole leaves him at the altar she them goes to Ohio to be with her lover onn the side wh turns out to be a woman a who goes by the name of Annya, well one day Darell is in Ohio for a book signing when he bumps into Nicole well they get into it den make up and now he knows of her lover and how Nicole was with her that whole and on there wedding day she was at the wedding well after all of this Darell meets Annya and the exchange a few works and now you'll just have to wait and see if Nicole is gonna choose Darell or Nicole read t to find out the shocking twist. will she be with Darell or Annya?

Funny story on how I came to read this book. I remember seeing this book on the $1 'for sale' table at the public library years ago and my first reaction was to pass on it. At the moment I began to look for something more "scholarly", this image of an episode from the 90s TV comedy, "A Different World" popped into my head. It was the episode where, Mrs. Claire Huxtable was telling Kim Reese during a career training fair to "read books with absolutely no literary value" in order to relax. So I took her advice and got this book. The irony of deferring to a television show in order to help with a book buying decision is another topic for another time. Notwithstanding, this was THE first book that I have ever read in that contemporary genre and I must admit, I was shocked at just how much I enjoyed it.

This is a book I would never have picked up at the library, orbought, or would have been interested in by reading a review. It came in a box of books on tape that I bought secondhand. A book about a guy and his exfiance who's now in a lesbian relationship? Written by a blackmale? With steamy sex scenes? No, not my type of book at all.So I was shocked. Not by the sex, but because I ended up reallyliking this book. I was prepared to dislike all of the characters.What kind of a loser would still want a woman who left him for another woman? And Nicole was so extremely selfish and self centered. Ayyana was such a heartless homewrecker. But by the end of the book I found I liked all of these character. The author made eachof them a person I could actually have sympanthy and respect for.I find this a rare and wonderful talent in an author.Now, as for the sex scenes I could do without them. For me theywere more of a distraction from the story than an inhancement.

good review. That's why I stopped reading his books years ago. The best book is sleeping with Strangers (very fast-paced, high action story!) The sequel to the book is Waking with Enemies which was the last book of his I read.
